ImageMagick and GD Library
Learn what ImageMagick is and just what the GD Library is utilized for and why they're so popular.
ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that need to be present on a server in order for images to appear on a particular site. They allow you to perform different tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etc. These things can certainly be performed online and in real time, so if you include a static image, for example, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to appear on the site or for the image to be resized automatically with regards to the device and resolution which the visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be employed with a lot of web programming languages including PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't need to stick to one particular language to build your site. They work with more than one hundred formats, which includes the most frequently used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so on.
